The average U.S. house collects over 40 lbs. of dust annually. That’s over 18,000 grams and food for 9 million dust mites! Dust particles range from 2.5-10 microns wide. Dust particles 2.5 microns wide can get stuck in human lungs. 500 dust mites can survive on 1 gram of dust. A dime-sized amount of dust can create carcinogenic levels of contamination in a small room. hughesenv.com/15-facts-about-dust
